Fall Salad Recipe

In today’s culture of fast food and ready-made meals, we often do not eat enough raw vegetables. The longer a vegetable is cooked, the more nutrients are killed, so it is very important to eat raw veggies on a regular basis in order to get the vitamins and minerals that we all need. The best way to do this is through salads. We know that salads can be a bit boring, so it is important to change them up and add ingredients other than just vegetables! Adding fruit, nuts, seeds, quinoa, rice, and/or goat cheese is a good way to make a salad delicious. Here is a recipe that I like to use for a nice fall salad:



Strawberries, chopped (you can also use blackberries, raspberries, or blueberries)



Pepitas (shelled pumpkin seeds)

Beets, chopped (I use organic Love Beets that come already cooked)

Cucumbers, sliced

Carrots, sliced

Celery, sliced

Chicken, cooked/grilled and sliced (optional)

Quinoa, cooked

Goat cheese (optional)


1. Chop all ingredients and place them all on a bed of spinach. (Remember: pretty salads are more fun to eat!)

2. Prepare the quinoa, following the instructions on the bag. I usually use organic chicken bone broth instead of water and 3 cloves of garlic (minced) for every cup of quinoa. Sprinkle the goat cheese on top of the quinoa, if desired.

3. Apply dressing. I usually use Primal Kitchen dressings (made with Avocado Oil) and I really like the Balsamic Vinaigrette and the Vegan Ranch, but they have many more delicious options, as well!
